It is hard to believe that we are already 11 days into the new year and for many of us that may mean new opportunities, resolutions and starting fresh. But for many women and children in our local community this means something completely different. This month we are supporting Family Services of Forsyth County, I am sure most of you have an idea of what they do to support people within our community but did you know that they have:
Here are a few things that the Shelter staff shared as needs:
Towels, Sheets—all sizes—the Shelter has twin beds, but other sized sheets can be used when women move out. Pajamas—for all sizes, women and children. Household cleaning products and basket for organization—to provide to families when they transition out of the shelter into their own home, diapers and wipes. They appreciate new linens and clothing (pjs), but can accept towels and sheets in very good condition.
Please bring any donations you can afford to donate to our first event of 2019 @ Fiddlin Fish Brewery. January 16th from 5:30 - 8:30pm.
,The last two years of my life have been full of so many emotions but I am glad to say that 2018 was a year of reflection. I started to focus only the things I could control, so with that in mind I completed my associates degree and started college at Western Carolina to work toward to teaching degree. I also took control of my finances, found this wonderful opportunity, fell deeper in love with Carl and stopped punishing myself for not having enough hours in the day to make everyone happy. As a mother I often find myself saying I am a bad mom, but during 2018 I decided that because I was always worried if I was doing a good job that I was indeed a good mama. We got to visit England see family that I had not seen in 5 years, we made memories that I will forever cherish and explored new places in Europe as a family. In 2018 I did not make a new years resolution but instead enjoyed the ride, I learnt a lot about myself in the past year and embraced the person I am today. We had a busy Christmas and as the New Year approached I was excited for our future. Little did I know though that the first thing that would happen to me in 2019 was that my best friend would propose to me in front of our family, of course I cried and said yes. Now we are 7 days into the new year and I know that 2019 is going to be a whirlwind of emotions, busy but full of magical things happening. Our family will be expanding in May/June with the new baby and we will be getting married in October. This is my second chance at happiness and I could not ask for a better person to be doing life with. In 2019 I want to push myself out of my comfort zone, make more time for my daughter, take more trips to the park to play, make new friends and cherish the ones I have. Be better prepared financially, be more spontaneous, reach out to people in my community and take the time to appreciate everything I have in my life. Life is never perfect, but my glass will always be half full, never half empty because I so much to be grateful for. I hope that in 2019 everyone is able to be grateful for all the positives in your life and remember that every day provides a new opportunity. What is your dream for 2019?
